The Washington Nationals today announced that Dr. Ben Shaffer, Nationals Medical Director and Team Orthopedist, has resigned his position as team doctor.

"I appreciate the opportunity afforded me to provide care to the Nationals players and organization the last three years," said Dr. Shaffer. "From a time standpoint, this responsibility has required an enormous commitment and I have decided to focus my energies on my family, my practice and the other professional teams I work closely with."

Nationals Senior Vice President and General Manager Jim Bowden responded, "I know I speak for the entire organization in recognizing Dr. Shaffer's invaluable contributions to our players' welfare and his orthopedic expertise. His departure is a real loss for our organization."
